- William Shakespeare's JULIUS CAESAR - The Graphic Novel
DetailsRome, 44BC, the great general Julius Caesar arrives home from war as the sole ruler of Rome. The citizens cheer the conquering hero, but not all are pleased to see him return. Many fear that with nobody to oppose him, this military genius will become a cruel dictator. A conspiracy takes shape that ensnares the noble Brutus, one of Caesar's most trusted allies, in an assassination plot that will change the course of history.
